IPE Summer Grant awarded to Lan Nguyen

IPE Junior Lan Nguyen has been awarded the IPE Summer Research Grant for 2007. Lan's project is titled "Brain Drain versus Brain Gain in Vietnam: Changes in Human Capital and its Effect on Development."

Lan writes that, "For my research I hope to explore the changes in human capital in Vietnam and how it affects the development process of the country. Furthermore, I want to investigate the causes of those changes -- focusing on such factors as immigration and travel policy. I will travel to Vietnam to interview people of different demographics and who are contributing to the country's brain drain/gain phenomenon."

The IPE grant provides $4000 to finance student research each year. The grant is funded by royalties from the IPE textbook project.
